The Post Office
The old Post Office has been lovingly restored and renovated to provide comfortable accommodation across the four en-suite bedrooms.

With furniture produced on the farm itself from Blackwood as well as Oregon pine ceilings and floors with yellow wood beams, the characteristic features of the building are accentuated with modern fittings taking the otherwise rustic trappings into the 21st century. Rooms have separate entrances for convenience and each has access to a stunning traditional porch ideal for late afternoon reading and relaxing.

Welsch House
The stunning Welsch House comprises two separate en-suite bedrooms with their own entrances adjoining a self-catering family unit. The rooms have wooden floors and reeded ceilings which make for cool summer temperatures and a rustic feel.

Located on an elevated section of the farm, wonderful vistas of the valley can be enjoyed from the vine covered veranda. A braai area with swimming pool is situated alongside the Welsch House.

The House of Grace
Built from stone and mud during the construction of the Montagu Pass, the House of Grace has been restored to maintain its original beauty with modern necessities being subtly added over the years.

The cottage sleeps six people with two double beds, two single beds, a small kitchen, bathroom, braai facilities and has the most incredible view of the majestic Outeniqua mountains.


The Police Station
The old Police Station has been transformed into a stunning dining area and lounge which despite renovations boasts original features including the wooden floors, doors and windows adding to the charm of this already idyllic space.

Guest Comments

Dave made us feel most welcome when we arrived. The guest farm is nice and quiet and the surrounding area beautiful. We will surely be back. A fridge in the rooms would be nice.
